Mike Trout went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.
Disappointing end to a series that started out promisingly enough for the Angels, who romped into Fenway with a 12-5 win on Friday before scoring just four runs combined in the next two games. Trout managed an RBI double off Wade Miley to draw the Angels to within 3-1 in the sixth inning on Sunday, but the team wouldn't score again and the Red Sox would tack on another three runs, anyway. Trout is hitting like Mike Trout and currently sports a .301/.392/.552 slash with 11 homers, 25 RBI, 34 runs scored and eight steals. May 24 - 4:58 PM

Mike Trout went 3-for-6 with an RBI single, a run scored, and a stolen base Friday against the Red Sox.

Trout was initially ruled out while trying to steal third base in the top of the fifth inning, but the call was overturned after an instant replay review revealed his nifty slide to avoid the tag. He already has eight stolen bases through 42 games this season after swiping 16 all of last year. The 23-year-old has three straight multi-hit games, which has pulled his batting average up to .303 on the year.

Mike Trout is starting at DH for the Angels on Thursday.

Trout had made all 40 of his previous starts in center field. It's just an opportunity to rest his legs. Collin Cowgill will start in center against the Blue Jays.
May 21 - 3:42 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with two walks, a solo home run, and three runs scored in Wednesday's victory against the Blue Jays.

Trout singled and scored in the fourth inning, homered in the fifth, and walked and scored in the seventh. As the Angels scored only four runs on the evening, Trout was a pretty big factor in the outcome. The defending AL MVP is batting .288/.386/.555 with 11 home runs, 22 RBI, and seven stolen bases.
May 20 - 9:48 PM

Mike Trout went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Orioles.

Move along, nothing to see here. With Giancarlo Stanton hitting moonshots and Bryce Harper smacking home runs every other day, it's easy to forget about Trout's brilliant work on the West Coast. One shouldn't do that. With the 3-for-5 day, he's now hitting .300/.399/.577 with 10 home runs, 21 RBI, 28 runs scored and a 7-for-9 mark on steals.
May 16 - 11:04 PM

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with a homer and a walk in a losing cause against the Astros on Saturday.

If Superman played Major League Baseball, he'd probably hit 1.000, not .306. Trout is pretty good, though. He's homered in three of his last four games, giving him nine long balls on the season. He's also 7-for-7 stealing bases.
May 9 - 11:57 PM

Mike Trout bopped a solo homer in Thursday's 3-2 setback versus Houston.

After Trout blasted that round-tripper in the first inning, the Angels proceeded to do zero on offense until the eighth inning. They almost won anyway, thanks to Hector Santiago, but Huston Street snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in the ninth. Trout has hit homers in two straight games. He's now slashing .298/.393/.587.
May 8 - 1:20 AM

Mike Trout finished 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Angels' 4-3 win versus the Mariners on Wednesday.

Trout's two-run dinger off Roenis Elias in the third inning put the Angels up 3-0, a lead they held until Dustin Ackley drove a sac fly to left field to knot the game 3-3 in the ninth. Trout came into the game on about as cold a streak as this world-beater catches: 1-for-12 with four strikeouts in his past three games. The 23-year-old is slashing .300/.398/.570 with seven homers, 17 RBI and six steals in exactly 100 at-bats.
May 7 - 1:26 AM

Mike Trout did not record a hit in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

The 0-for-4 snapped a little four-game hitting streak that Trout had working. The Angels, as a team, had just three singles. With the 0-for-4, Trout's now hitting .318/.425/.591. He's homered six times, driven in 15, scored 22 runs and doesn't turn 24 until August.
May 3 - 8:35 PM

Mike Trout finished 2-for-3 with a walk, double, homer, two runs scored and three RBI as the Angels toppled the A's 6-3 on Wednesday.

The third inning solo shot off Jesse Hahn was Trout's fifth of the year, good for sixth in the AL. He leads the AL with 18 runs scored. Trout, slashing .315/.427/.575, will continue tormenting the best hurlers in the game for the next 15 years or so.
Apr 30 - 1:14 AM

Mike Trout hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning of Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

Trout smashed the long-ball off of Anthony Bass. It was his fourth homer of the season and his first since April 17. He finished the game 1-for-4 with two RBI and two walks. After a nuclear start to the season, Trout's "cooled off" to a .318/.432/.545 line. There's no reason to expect his usual brilliance to legitimately fade any time soon.
Apr 26 - 9:16 PM

Mike Trout went 0-for-3 in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Trout's hitting just .222 over his last five games, with just four hits in his last 18 at-bats. This is about as bad as it gets for the reigning AL MVP. Even with the recent scuffles, he's still slashing .333/.413/.556 with three home runs, nine RBI and 13 runs scored. He'll get back to destroying the universe soon enough.
Apr 23 - 1:59 AM

Mike Trout went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

This a day after Trout pounded two home runs and knocked in five. The fickle nature of baseball in action. In Saturday's case, Dallas Keuchel was able to handle the reigning MVP. Even with the quiet game, Trout's still hitting .400/.457/.675 and is as good as today's game gets.
Apr 18 - 11:53 PM

Mike Trout blasted his way into the record books on Friday, going 2-for-4 with a pair of homers and five RBI as the Angels dispatched of the Astros 6-3.

With his sixth inning blast off Roberto Hernandez, Trout became the youngest player in baseball history to accumulate 100 home runs and 100 stolen bases, accomplishing the feat at 23 years and 253 days old, 56 days younger than the previous record-setter Alex Rodriguez. For good measure, he added a three-run bomb off Chad Qualls in the eighth inning to lead the Halos to victory. Already the game's best all-around player, it's scary to think how much better Trout will become.
Apr 17 - 11:55 PM

Mike Trout finished 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI in Wednesday's rout of the Rangers.

Trout singled and stole a base in the first inning, walked and scored in the second inning, hit an RBI single in the fourth inning, and then singled and scored in the sixth inning. He's batting .438/.500/.594 through his first 38 plate appearances this season.
